Abdelaziz "Zizo" Alsharawy

I am a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University in the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics. I earned my PhD in Economics from Virginia Tech in August of 2021, with a research focus in behavioral and experimental economics.

Using behavioral experiments, quantitative modeling, and neuroeconomic methods, I investigate the underpinnings of perception, preferences, and decision-making in emotionally charged contexts across three lines of research spanning risky, intertemporal, and social choices. I use a wide range of techniques including online, lab and field experiments, eye-tracking, psychometrics, and psychophysiological methods.

I grew up in Cairo, Egypt before moving to study in Manchester, New Hampshire. In 2016, I received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Finance from Saint Anselm College.
